Please transfer management of the memorials for Abner Russell (#22159598) and Sarah "Sally" Young Russell (#22159603) to me. They were my great-great-great-grandparents. Thank you.

On the following two memorials, Harold and Jane Buck, were married on June 25, 1934 according to their marriage certificate not in 1924.

Would you be so kind as to change the year on both of their memorials.

Harold Millard 'Jerry Buck' #23858461
Jane Vincent Buck #23858880

Thank you so much for all the work you have done and the information you have provided.

Incorrect photo attributed to FAG 22076350
I requested a photo and the photographer got the wrong Harriet Rowcliff as you can see from the DOB/DOD and spouse!!! There were two Harriet Rowcliff's. One of them was the one on this request whose maiden name was Thompson and was married to James Ford Rowcliff and the other was Harriet Rowcliffe whose maiden name was Hatfield and whose DOB and DOD were completely different. Please take down the pic if you can!

Regarding Lucy (Bridgham) McNamara. The find-a-grave page states her parents were Harold Bridgham and Ida Ella. Ruby was born in 1894. Harold and Ida were married in 1908. And "Cook County, Illinois, Marriages Index, 1871-1920," ( lists the marriage of Mrs. Ida Morgan and Harold Bridgham on Sep 10, 1908. This implies that she had been previously married to a man named Morgan. Her maiden name is still not known.

So it appears that Ruby is the daughter of Ida Ella Morgan (unknown maiden name) and Mr. Morgan, her first husband (first name unknown).

The 1920 census lists a divorced Ruby Bridgham living in Chillicothe with her mother Ida Bridgham. So either Harold adopted Ruby, or she used the surname "Bridgham" out of convenience.
